Post Otakon

Hey just got back from Otakon, was incredibly fun and chaotic as usual. Had a great time!

I cosplayed for the first time this year and figured why not go all out so me and my girlfriend Amanda did two costumes together. She is fully responsibly for the costume, I just paid my way and helped apply the makeup and wore it. However I did come up with the idea to be Manchu and her be Pika girl.

The workshop that I did with Mayshing went well, I pretty much winged it since I had never been a part of a panel/workshop before and had trouble really planning it out with mayshing since she was rather busy. But the crowd really seemed to enjoy it and took a lot out of it.

I also have tons of amazing footage from the expo and hope to put a video up on youtube within a week, i'll post again when it's up.

There are more pics from Otakon on my facebook page and certainly more to come in the near future so keep a look out.

Also the "drinking and drawing" animation is finally online, you can check it out here:

I'm heading to Baltimore Maryland tomorrow for Otakon, the biggest anime expo on the east coast! Should be a good time. I'll be dressing up both Friday & Saturday, Saturday I will be one of the band members from the Daft Punk Film "Interstella 5555" while Amanda will be the girl from the same film. The costume for Friday is a surprise, but look for yellow.

I'll be a part of Mayshing's panel on the 2nd day of Otakon if anyone would like to come and check it out:

11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
Workshop 1 (BCC - Room 339-340)

I've made a bit more progress on Thesis, animated a little more and put some of it together in AfterEffects, i'm having some cameo's appear in the protest scene.

I've also made a bit more progress on the intro to "Sick & Tired of Being Sick & Tired", i've begun animating the main bit of it and from here on in there are no cuts just lots of animated camera movements.

I storyboarded the first short for The Orrick Law Firm and have actually begun animating it now, so production is actually underway.

Well off to Otakon, hope to see some of you there!
